From JohnM: Africans for Congo (50 Points)
It is always nice to have 2 posts for 1 week, these are hot off the press. Finished last night and photographed not 30 minutes ago!
This is the second batch of figures from the White Men Expeditions box from Foundry Miniatures for the game Congo. My first figures were the White Men, now we see their African Escorts. This includes the Kirangozi, pictured below in red shorts. He is one of the major characters in the game, literally the guide of the expedition. We also have the Trained Askaris in their red turbans. The yellow was a bit of a challenge but I think looks OK. They have been well trained in the use of the rifles with which they are armed. They are for the protection of the explorers.
Well that just leaves the Ruga-Ruga and the Young Warriors and the box will be all done!
Fifty points, I believe.
ByronM: Very nice second post here John. I like the bright colours contrasting the dark skin here, it really makes everything stand out. I really like the collection you have going so far, it is a very different setting than most of us have played, and sounds interesting. Now your issue is going to be fitting terrain for jungle expeditions!
